The National Trust

Humphries Weaving has 50 years of experience of working with the National Trust. Well known for our planning and extensive research of traditional techniques we are able to develop authentic National Trust fabric.

Textiles woven by Humphries Weaving have been commissioned to sit in many of Britain’s most prestigious and well-loved National Trust properties. We understand exactly how to produce National Trust fabrics that are appropriate for the period and that are opulent yet practical in application.

Often conservation and restoration of textiles go hand in hand, and we work closely with a team of crafts people and curators from the National Trust to ensure authentic fabric reproduction. Historically silk fabric was hung on walls, instead of wallpaper to portray the wealth and importance of the property owner. These unique rooms often feature decorative textiles, however plain fabrics such as camlets and linings are often as important.

Humphries Weaving are proud to have worked with the following National Trust properties; Calke Abbey, Castle Coole, Kedleston Hall, Petworth House, Nostell Priory, Dyffryn House, Tredegar House, Treasurers House, Blickling Hall, Charlecote Park, Gawthorpe Hall, Belton House, Ham House, Stourhead, Osterley Park House, Dunham Massey, Powis Castle, Attingham Park, Hughenden Manor, Mount Stewart (NI), Subdury Hall, Buscot Park and Waddesdon Manor and Felbrigg Hall.
